Last updated : 24 January 2009 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
Struggling AFC Bournemouth throughly deserved their 3-1 win over Wycombe Wanderers at Dean Court after a dodgy start when 'keeper Button failed to deal with a back pass, allowing Harrold the easiest of tap-ins from close range. The Cherries hit back when Pitman netted from a 30-yard free kick in the 24th minute, and Pearce headed home from a Pitman corner 8 minutes later. Thomson rounded off the scoring for the Cherries with a cross-come-shot in the 64th minute to round off a miserable afternoon for the Chairboys on the south coast. AFC Bournemouth 23rd, Wycombe Wanderers 1st.

Brentford failed to capitalise as they slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Moss Rose against Macclesfield. Sinclair gave the Silkmen the lead on the stoke of half time, with Evans converting from the penalty spot 13 minutes after the restart. Macclesfield 15th, Brentford 2nd.

Bury did take advantage through a 2-1 win over Aldershot Town at Gigg Lane. Barry-Murphy and Morrell gave the home side a 2-goal lead just before the break with strikes in the 41st and 45th minutes. The Shots pulled one back with 7 minutes to go through Davies. Bury 3rd, Aldershot Town 11th.

Gillingham are getting their act together, and have now hoisted themselves nicely in to a group of teams just behind the automatic promotion places. A single goal from Miller in the 79th minute was enough to give them 3-points against Exeter City at Priestfield. Gillingham 4th, Exeter City 9th.

Dagenham & Redbridge managed to edge past Rochdale at Victoria Road in 5-goal encounter. Arber gave the home side an 8th minute lead with Kennedy levelling for the Dale in the 16th minute with Adams giving the Lancashire-side a 21st minute lead. Ritchie levelled for the home side in the 74th minute, with Southam scoring what proved to be the winner 5 minutes later. The home side were reduced to 10-men when Saunders was sent off in the 88th minute. Dagenham & Redbridge 5th, Rochdale 10th.

Shrewsbury Town won by a single goal through Walker in the 5th minute at The New Meadow against play-off rivals Darlington. Shrewsbury Town 6th, Darlington 8th.

Bradford City left it late to snatch a point against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road, while at the same time breaking the hearts of the home fans. The Hatters took a 2-goal lead in the opening 45 minutes when Hall netted in the 4th minute and Wasiu netted in the 37th minute. City hit back through McLaren in the 47th minute and Furman 10 minutes later. Luton looked to have wrapped up the points when Hall netted in the 91st minute only for Conlon to score from the penalty spot in the 97th minute. Luton Town 24th, Bradford City 7th.

Lincoln City had to make do with a share of the points against Chester City at Sincil Bank. Barry had given the visitors a 31st minute lead, but saw Frecklington level in the 80th minute. Lincoln City 12th, Chester City 18th.

Notts County were made to work for their win at Meadow Lane over Port Vale. Weston gave County a 32nd minute lead, with Richman levelling in the 51st minute. Forrester then levelled and gave County the advantage again with goals in the 55th and 65th minutes. Vale gave themselves hope of a point when Dodds pulled one back in the 73rd minute. But it was not to be as Forrester completed his hat trick from the penalty spot in the 81st minute. Notts County 13th, Port Vale 17th.

Chesterfield slipped to their 5th home defeat of the season against Morecambe at Saltergate. Howe gave the visitors a 54th minute lead. Gritton levelled 3 minutes later with Stanley scoring the winner in the 65th minute. Chesterfield 14th, Morecambe 16th.

Accrington Stanley and Barnet had to settle for a point-a-piece at Livington Road as Flurlong scored for the visitors in the 6th minute and Mullin levelling in the 56th minute. Acrrington Stanley 19th, Barnet 21st.

Grimsby Town made it two wins on the spin with a key 3-0 victory over Rotherham United at Blundell Park. Widdowson (56th min), Proudlock (73rd min pen) and Sinclair (84th min) netted the goals to claim a vital 3-points. Grimsby Town 22nd, Rotherham United 20th.
